If you are a monogamous Couple you will already have a degree of special affection based on the fact that you have chosen each other over all others.
I provide Couples Therapy and Marriage Counseling as well as I specialize in PreMarital Counseling. As a Relationship Therapist I help couples in all stages of love -- attraction, serious dating, living together, committed, engaged & married. I am available to help you enhance your intimate life together or, if you're struggling, I can help you get into a warmer, closer bond in your relationship before things go too far.
Are you trying hard to get closer but hitting a wall? Using specialized counseling techniques I can help you prevent break-ups, stop power struggles and improve your affectionate communication. I will help you resolve misunderstandings, ease frustrations and heal emotional damage so that a closer relationship is possible.
As your Therapist I understand that it's very hard when your love life is out of sync and caught in painful patterns. When love is off course it disturbs all aspects of your life.
Depending on your love language you may have entirely different ideas than your partner on what constitutes affection.
If you would benefit from learning new ways to communicate your love to each other, define your needs and get them met I can help you.
I have an unflinching fascination with all facets of human nature and I counsel all relationship issues including the non-traditional. I am happy to extend my expertise to you. I treat the sexual enhancement of Couples with the sensitivity and gentleness that it deserves. My training and clinical experience is in sex and intimacy enhancement and restoration.
I don't however work with sexual dysfunction, sexual addictions, or porn/internet addiction. For those issues I will provide you with referrals.
Email is the best way to reach me.
I look forward to hearing from you.
